16 oz can of this English style porter poured near black and near opaque with a good head. The roasty flavor is good but not up to the level of the very appealing aroma. Tasting does bring out some light smoke that adds to the dry finish. Suggestions of black coffee here rather than the toffee that’s apparent in the nose.

16oz can poured a medium brown with off white head. The aroma is roasted malts, hints of chocolate and plenty of coffee. The body is thinner than I expected almost a brown ale style. Also in the the are plenty of roasted malts, hints of chocolate and again plenty of coffee. In the end it is quite bitter and not what I would expect from a porter.

Poured from a bomber that I got on my 40th birthday - so it has sat for about 9 months.
Aroma - nice chocolate aroma, good stuff.
Appearance - Nice pour. Nice fluffy creamy looking head.
Taste - surprising very nice. It almost comes across as a mild black IPA.
Palate - nice chocolate after taste.
Overall - Very good. I would have this again.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a very dark brown with a creamy tab head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has has a nice roasted malt and dark grain combination with a hint of sweetness. Flavor has sweet dark grains up front but finish has more roasted malts and a touch of bitterness.

Tap (Dixie’s on Grand); pours dark brown with a beige head; aroma of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruit; taste is roast malt and coffee with hints of dark fruit and chocolate; finish is bitter; this was a little thinner body than I expected for a porter; okay but could be better

Pour at the 2014 Minnesota State Fair. Was looking forward to this but after the first sip, I suspected this was just their regular porter with a marshmallow floating on top and some gram cracker and chocolate crust on the plastic cup. A quick visit to ratebeer.com confirmed my suspicion. Its a nice porter, but I can’t help but feel let down by Flat Earth here. I’ve had some of their infused brews at Winterfest and they have been fantastic. Disappointed!

Bomber. Dark brown black with small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, light smoke, and some grain notes. Medium body, roasted malt, chocolate, and noticeable smoke with a tangy finish. Interesting, it reminds me more of a stout.

Black with off-white head. Lots of chocolate malt on the nose. Taste is mild roasted malt, milk chocolate and some bitter earthy hops. A bit on the thin side. It's flavorful and drinkable.

Enjoyed with Lowther’s. Nice malty porter, nuts and dark forest fruits. Nothing that leaps out but would never turn down.
